Iceland Oct 15
Iceland , the Land of Ice and Fire ! We did a self drive tour of 11 days around the ring road during autumn and had many Wow Experiences during our trip – like – being greeted by the Northern Lights at Reykjavik when we arrive in at our lodging in the evening . Saw 14 rainbows and 3 double rainbows in our first 3 days of the trip ! Changeable weather , from sunshine , to thunderstorms , to gale , to sleet within minutes to a hour during our drive. The lights and colours of the sky interacting with land is so intensely rich that makes ones photos look like a Pro easily .
The Land of Elves and Mythology , one feels immersed in the realm of Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones . An Angelic Presence greeted me at Gulfoss Waterfalls and held me through my trip , providing guidance and solace and a warm invitation to return in future . Asbyrgi Canyon in Northern Iceland in the land of elves – shaped like a giant horseshoe -according to Norse Mythology was formed by Sleipnir , Odin’s 8 legged hose when it put its hoof down onto earth . The grass in the canyon is so full of love , that one cannot help but lay down and rest there .
Viewing the Northern Lights in Iceland was an unforgettable experience itself . We had several sitings during the trip , the most beautiful and profound ones were seen at jokusarlon glacier and on a hilltop at Husavik . When you spot the northern lights appearing , its best to go to the darkest area you can find away from light pollution with unobstructed view and patiently wait and watch . The Northern Lights , began their dance , swirling , twirling , elongating , expanding its width like an accordion from green into a multitude of colours , such as green , yellow , purple , blue , pink , the visual harmonic range of the lights expanding and contracting , appearing and dissapearing , left me in tears as she showed me a thread leading back to the Divine Mother and the consciousness of the Universe .
Canyons and waterfalls , volcanoes and mountains , glaciers and ice caves , geysers and whales , and a land of contrast . Driving through the landscape – sometime you feel like your are on Mars , sometime on the Moon Surface at other times another planet . When you visit Iceland , keep yourself open and receptive , and let the land and its beautiful people show you the way into their universe inside 🙂
